Life Happens

The beginning of the week was a great time for a positive, hopeful, energized, determined Shannon. I was so excited about my healthy eating, so excited to be thinking differently about food, and was just ON MY A GAME! 

And then.............

I went down. 

I have the stomach bug. And to be frank, a stomach bug ON TOP of 10-day cleanse. 


I need not say more. 


I had to stop taking my supplements for two half days- (1 24-hour period) AND.... the thought of food just turned my stomach. Broccoli? No thank you. 

So, I have had Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup for my last two meals, and crackers. Yep, classic ol' saltines. Oh, and ginger ale. 

These three magical ingredients make me feel better. Whether it's because that is what you eat when you are sick, or because it actually does make you feel better, I don't know. But it is what it is. 

So, am I panicking a little bit because I am off of my track? To be honest: yes. Should I be? No. People get sick. And they eat soup, with a... noodle... in it. 

I am afraid of losing momentum on the scale. Fearful of seeing the number go up, instead of down. These things don't really matter. It really doesn't. 

What matters is that I get better. I get rest. And I wake up tomorrow morning feeling stupendous and ready to take back on life, and the broccoli. 

Because, to be truthful, the LAST time I was sick, I had two McDonalds cheeseburgers. and it was FANTASTIC. As wonderful as I know that will taste, I am going to be thankful for chicken noodle soup instead. It's gotta be healthier. Right?
